There is no sure-fire way to stop all of our residents from purchasing and flushing various types of wipes down the toilet but creating awareness and reminding people several times a year has definitely helped.
So-called ‘flushable’ wipes are a nightmare for multifamily communities because several units’ bathrooms all meet and empty into a main pipe. Waste and everything else that gets flushed away meet up and create monstrous blockages in no time.
Families are displaced and belongings are ruined. Insurance deductibles have to be paid and sometimes sentimental items are ruined.
